    Someone smarter explain how TOR appears to be allowed to be 10+mil over the cap? Can they really go into the season over the cap that much? https://www.capfriendly.com/

    Kronwall Officially Announces Retirement

    Agree, I happened to be lucky enough to be at a few when games when someone got Kronwalled. I wish the Wings had more chants. I was also lucky to be at the Joe when the first time the TODD-BER-TU-ZZI chant happen. Loved it, we need more of this badly. We don't have to go full Nashville, but it's been lacking over the years to say the least.

    Kronwall Officially Announces Retirement

    Thanks you Niklas Kronwall for all the great memories. Sadly with Knrowall retiring we lose one of best chants as well. I'll miss hits like this:

    Hall of Fame Boards

    I pretty much only go to HFboards during the playoffs because the banter gets good and reading people cry about losing because NHL loves X team more than Y can be entertaining. Sometimes I keep an eye on it on FA day. Game Day threads are okay in the RedWing section, but I only go there when it's super slow here. Outside of that, 90% of the forms posts are invaded by TOR fans at some point and turn the topic into something about them no matter what. Within 3-4 posts, doesn't take long.

    Reddit red wings thread

    I'd rather not. Reddit great for many things, but I come to LGW for the sense of community feeling reddit just doesn't have.

    2020 Draft Thread

    Call me crazy, but if we don't pick top 2, I want Yaroslav Askarov over everyone. This kid just wins.

    2020 Offseason Rebuild Thread

    I think CHI tried Kane at center for a moment. It was pretty fail if I remember right. 2011 or 2012, I forget. Lafreniere is compared to Kane the most from what I've been reading. I'd rather him just stay wing.

    Zadina Says It

    I am pretty sure we would of taken Dobson or Bouchard over Hughes if Zadina didn't fall to us. I can't lie, I wanted Zadina when it appeared he was going to be fall to us. As a Michigan Wolverine fan I wanted Hughes going into the draft. But before that I didn't think we had a chance at Zadina. I don't blame Holland for the pick Zadina pick. Even if he's not as good as a NHLer as Q.Hughes. I do blame him for Franzen and Weiss turn outs. VAN drafting so well without them top 3 picks. We need to take note..

    News From Around the NHL

    Anyone not named Larkin, should be in play for Risto if the option is available in my opinion. Most of Risto flaws can be easily summed up in 3 reasons. 1.Buffalo 2.Buffalo 3.He's 24 The guy 24, hits and blocks everything that moves 6'4 220lb and can play huge mins with 4 straight season of 40+ points. Oh and just happens to shot right. He's a power play beast, god knows we need help on the power play.

    2020 Offseason Rebuild Thread

    I think Jacob Markstrom is a solid goalie. He has put decent numbers on a weak VAN team. Should be even better this year. I am not sold on Lehner outside of a Barry Trotz system. Should be a cheaper than Lehner. Krug would be nice, great offensive mind on the back-end that we just don't have. I think you need at least one guy like that. Knowing some BOS fans over the years, they seem to have a love-hate relationship with him. Because of his defensive laps. But hes a PP beast and a performs in the playoffs. If we just don't resign some dead weight or trade it and signed Markstrom, I think I would be happy with that off-season.

    I like it. I've grown tried of GM's being scared to send offers to RFA.
  20. Still good to see a team with balls send a offer to a RFA of high value. Doesn't happen often. I'd like to see it happen more, force the other teams hand for a change.
  21. Only to pick 6th again.

    2019 Draft

    Datz kind of comes to mind for me. He had great acceleration, but his top end speed never appeared to be very fast. More so as he aged.

    I will have to take a look at this for sure. Thanks for the info. Sounds fun, something to speed up the off-season. Nice, it's on sale for 4.99$ from 19.99$ as well.
